Recently, I went to visit Andy & Rhea in their home to meet newborn baby Finley. I am telling you, if all babies were this sweet, I would photograph newborns all. the. time. They were very into the lifestyle way of shooting that I love and really allowed me to just capture them in this moment, cuddling, feeding, and becoming a sweet family of three.Read More
I first met Natalie and Chris when our mutual friend seated us together at her wedding reception, thinking that we would enjoy each others company - and boy, did we! I ended up dancing the night away with Natalie and AJ and I became fast friends with her and her husband, Chris. Naturally, we were SO excited when on one of our first outings with our new baby, we found out that Natalie and Chris were expecting! Apparently, little dude decided that he wanted in on that Thanksgiving dinner, because he came out over a month early, ready to rock and roll! I was so excited to get an opportunity to hang with this little guy and capture this amazing little family's newest addition!Read More
It's no surprise that two beautiful people created a beautiful baby - but what is a surprise is how cool and calm the little 6 day old Cora was for her very first photoshoot! This lil' mermaid must have felt right at home being so close to the beach. When I asked her mom to grab me a prop that I had thought of, she ended up finding an old box and cigar that her father had given her from when she was born - talk about a perfect find! I'm sure he will be thrilled to see that box in use during his granddaughter's photos :)Read More
When I met Megan and Cliff I was immediately taken aback by their intense love for each other - it was visible with every smile and look they gave each other. I was thrilled when during our consultation for their wedding, Megan revealed that she was also expecting and that her little would be a part of their upcoming wedding in December. I was thrilled for the opportunity to capture the most amazing moment of their lives: the birth of their daughter, Audrey. It was just after 10 PM when I arrived at Southlake - and you would never know that Megan was in labor! I walked into a room filled with giggles and jokes and it was a real celebration of life. I'm pretty sure Megan laughed Audrey straight into the world. Welcome to the world, Audrey! We are so thrilled that you are here. I can't wait to see how much she's grown in December for their wedding in Mt. Dora!Read More
I've adored Kimberly and Michael since the moment I met them several years ago when we were having a consult regarding their wedding day coverage and since then I have been there for their engagement photos, boudoir photos, wedding day, and so it was only natural that I was overly excited for the chance to be a part of the most intense day of their lives: the birth of their son, Parker Angelo. The kicker to this story is that they waited until the birth to find out the sex of the baby, so it was doubly exciting!
Kimberly was admitted into the hospital around 8 PM on Saturday night and then spent 31 grueling hours in labor, anxiously awaiting the moment that she could deliver the baby, and we were there with them, every step of the way! From the excited phone calls to following along via text, to trading off coverage in the labor and delivery room, we truly felt like we were a part of it all. Needless to say our hearts were broken when Kimberly had no choice but to deliver Parker via C-section, and thus kicking us out of the chance to capture the actual birth, but thanks to a wonderful nurse who took a handful of photos, we were able to incorporate those along with our before and after photos. It was a pleasure meeting the thick haired and super cute Parker Angelo! Welcome to the world, little man! Everyone has been waiting for you.Read More
